Mumford and GWS midfielders came at them and Melbourne just fell away and got smashed.

Guys like Tyson and Jones were already having below average games. Their talls in Hogan, Dawes and McDonald were dominating in the first half but once supply stopped they were dead in the water

Dawes was shower lol

McDonald was great for the whole game though - destroyed Cameron even with the supply the GWS mids were giving him

TMac's best moment was that beautiful spoil from the impossible position; running with the same direction as the ball to spoil Tomlinson I think it was... saved a goal.

If you are drink driving, and driving without a liscence... that should be jail time. 'Suspending from driving for 11 months' - he already didn't have a liscence! What's that do?

I have come to realise this season that as unfortunate as it is for Mckenzie, we don't really need him in the side anymore. There have been now numerous guys in Cross, Vince and Viney that can do excellent hard tags on some of the best players and still win more ball than their direct opponent. I am actually really interested to see what will happen this Friday night against Richmond. Who will be given the job and who will be tagged? Vince? Cross? Martin? Cotchin? Ellis?

The tag will make an interesting watch each week for me now.

Reckon Viney would be a bloke that could one day break free of tagging duties though Barra? Is the offensive side of his game good enough? Or will he always be a defensive mid that wins his own ball? Similar to a Carrazzo in his prime?
Interested in your thoughts.

I think the tagging duties are more of a learning experience for Viney at the moment

He will always be somewhat defensive though as it's in his nature

Yes, you could put him in the same bracket as Jones as the hard nut inside midfielder. At the moment you could certainly put him into that Carrazzo bracket too. I loved what he used to be able to do. I don't think Viney will ever be that clearance winning, high possession machine. But you can bet your bottom dollar that he will always give 100% and make a contest out of it. The tagging duty on Ablett was definitely a learning experience of running patterns etc. Maybe 5/6 years later that may change, but that is what he is at the moment. You forget how young the guy actually is sometimes.

Definitely seeing similarities between Viney and a young Jones. Gives his all, disposable questionable and often tags. IIRC Jones did a couple of stellar jobs tagging Swanny in his prime on Queens birthday; I reckon it's just a bit of experience for Viney before he's unleashed in a couple of years.
